Title: The Absolutely Incomplete Zaccaria's Aracades Catalogue
Post by: vernimark on September 11, 2014, 03:02:55 AM
Last year I had a talk with Natale Zaccaria about their arcades and he told me that a lot of document have been lost during these years and moving from location to location. Some weeks ago I had another talk with Federico Croci (www.tilt.it) and he saved tons of documents copying a lot of articles from newspapers provided by Marino Zaccaria some years ago.
Then in the italian arcade forums something is moving and after years of MAME cabs a new arcade consciousness is coming :) and zac cabs are becoming quite popular.

in the end of the day I decided to collect some infos from ZAC collectors in order to create a sort of catalog with cabinet classifications in terms of shape, side art, hardware type and so on (suggestions are welcome).
If you think this job can be useful and interesting please feel free to share with me your info :D

then I'd like to propose the result to the zac brothers to have their "blessing" :O

Am I wasting my time or not?

Am I wasting my time or not?

Great idea! Also, this would look great next to my book on italian pinballs, made by Federico a few years ago ;)

I am not exactly a fan of Zaccaria cabs (though I don't hate them anymore like I used to  ;D) but one of my focuses in this hobby is archiving and preserving, all the "archeological" stuff, so I'm totally for it.
Unfortunately I don't think I could contribute anything. :(

I have the (I think) only known copy of the sea scare flyer.
Just an A4 sheet really ;)
I submitted it to arcade flyer but they don't seem to care. :-\

This kind of info should be collected. So much is lost. when I find something I scan it.

Post by: PaulSwan on September 22, 2014, 01:24:47 AM
That's quite a task to compile all that information. There are probably three main sources of information:
1) The flyer archive.
2) The cabinets that have surfaced over the years.
3) Any documentation or information from the Zaccaria family & original workforce.

There are an awful lot of historical questions that remain unanswered and some day I hope the Zaccaria family or workers can answer them to complete their legacy before the information is lost.

If the Tilt dude has paperwork he should scan it and let us see it :)

Paul.

Hi Paul,
thank you for your reply...
I'm collecting pics and docs from everywhere :D and your website is fantastic  :shock:

I'm working with Federico Croci (Tilt) in this direction and I hope to have the opportunity to scan all docs related to videogames. Actually he is a pinball collector and hasn't so much about video games...

DOCUMENTS:
I could find only the following documents:
Cat'n mouse - TECHNICAL MANUAL (I have the original)
Space Pirate - COCKTAIL TECHNICAL MANUAL
Quasar - US BILLIARD TECHNICAL MANUAL

I just found the QUASAR TECHNICAL MANUAL &  SCHEMATICS for the italian market with very detailed elements about the cabinet. I'm scanning it.

Are there some other documents available?





Title: Re: The Absolutely Incomplete Zaccaria's Aracades Catalogue
Post by: vernimark on September 22, 2014, 04:33:54 AM
SHAPES

I started trying to identify all cabinet shapes produced with a schematics about which game has been produced in what shape.

UR1 Up right type 1, the upright with "rounded" marquee
UR2 Up right with an unique panel with a single coin door
UR3 Up right similar to UR2 but the sides are rounded on the top-back
UR4 Up right similar to UR3 but with a double coin door: one to insert coins, one to collect them
UR5 Up right similar to UR4 but the second coin door takes all the bottom part or the cabinet
UR6 Up right with rectangular marquee
CP1 Cockpit (found some generic cockpits)
CA1 Cabaret
WC1 Wall cabinets. As described in some flyers but I couldn't find any picture
CT1 Cocktail tables
TP1 Late Tecnoplay generic cabinet
BI1 US Billiards up right
BI2 US Billiards cabaret
UN1 to UN6 unique dedicated cabs

I attached a PDF with all pictures I found used to identify these cab types.

Please tell me your opinion and if you know a cabinet version not included in that document please post a picture in order to update the doc.

Not sure if Crazy kong ever came in a cocktail, i think its converted.
look at the art of the CP, it looks like scramble or super cobra.

an update about documents and one request

DOCUMENTS:
I could find only the following documents:
Cat'n mouse - TECHNICAL MANUAL (I have the original)
Space Pirate - COCKTAIL TECHNICAL MANUAL
Quasar - US BILLIARD TECHNICAL MANUAL

on Etienne server:
Astro Wars - TECHNICAL MANUAL and SCHEMATICS
Money Money - TECHNICAL MANUAL
Tron - TECHNICAL MANUAL

en Speleo web site:
Zaccaria Universal Cab (economy) - TECHNICAL MANUAL


On my scanner:
Quasar - TECHNICAL MANUAL
Zaccaria Universal Cab (normal and economy)



REQUEST

Obviously I'm looking for all documents not included in the previous list.
I'd like to find one manual about a cabinet as I call: UR type 6 (type without rounded marquees)
Here a picture of UR6 cabs I found and a picture from an UR5 manual. I'd like to find the same picture of a UR6 cab
Thank you

PS please let me know if you use another terminology.

Post by: PaulSwan on September 23, 2014, 06:41:38 PM
There are quite a lot of manuals available in either paper or scanned, and also quite a lot of flyers. These are the manuals I have...
http://www.paulswan.me/arcade/manualsUS.htm (http://www.paulswan.me/arcade/manualsUS.htm)
...that's slightly out of date.

In your classification, the UR3 series were the MTC-900 ones and the UR2 series the KT-3's, I think. You'll probably want to call out the B&W vectors as a separate class of cabinet.
There two flavors of UR1 - the colour ones (Astro Wars/Galaxia) and the B&W ones (Dodgem, The Invaders). Further, there's The Invaders (dedicated) and then there are some one off B&W's (Circus, Off Limits) before that, even.
Best bet is to put what you have on a web page and we'll all chime on what should be where :)

Great effort!
Paul.

I've to ask you a big favor...
could you scan again the manual or at least that page modifying the color regulation?
probably you can improve the image quality. here an example.
than you !!!  :oops:  :oops:  :oops:

@paul

DOCUMENTS
wow you have a very huge amount of interesting manuals!!

I write here what I miss. If you haven't time to scan them you can send me the paper and I can do it for you, at my expense of course...

Crazy Kong Technical Manual (Zaccaria) - COULD BE IN BETTER CONDITION THAN ETIENNE's
Quasar Technical Manual (Zaccaria) ONLY IF IT IS IN ENGLISH, I'M SCANNING A VERY COMPLETE ITALIAN VERSION
Jackrabbit Modification Kit for Money Money (Zaccaria)
The Invaders Instruction Manual (Model Racing/Zaccaria)
Technical Manual for Galaxia (Zaccaria)
Scramble Technical Manual (Zaccaria)
Instruction Manual for Astro Wars (Zaccaria) IS THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL DIFFERENT FROM THE TECHNICAL MANUAL WE HAVE?
Super Cobra Technical Manual (Zaccaria)
Frogger Technical Manual (Zaccaria)
Technical Manual for Laser Battle (Zaccaria)

CLASSIFICATION
in this first classification I'm trying to identify the external "shapes" only; that's the reason I'm looking for the original cabinets b/w draws (I think it's nice to use original document parts). Once we can assign a cab classification to each product, next step is on the control panel formats (Etienne already made a great job on that). After that: side arts and graphic sets and then we can "open" the cabinets.

WEB
yes it's a good idea to put everything on the web. Once I have enough stuff I'll open a dedicated page where you can add comments and open discussions...

thank you

actually we are not so friend, I met them only during some meetings and exhibitions. usually Natale is quite happy to talk about their history but often he says :"yes one day, now I'm very busy..."

I dont have the Original, i just downloaded this PDF after Laschek pointed me to it.

If i had the Original, and scanned it myself, it would have been alot higher quality as i do have some practice with that on sidearts and stuff  ;)

However, i can try to manual trace it in illustrator and "restore" that document..

time time time is what i need  ;D

I am in the search for a part of the serial code for a alusticker that i am making for some guy,

I have looked back in my previous runs and came up with this data:

116.xxx  Phoenix (flying soucer artwork cabinet)
125.xxx  Phoenix (Spacestation artwork cabinet)
127.xxx  Vanguard
142.xxx  Starsplash cabinet
133.xxx  Comidar
132.xxx  Crazy Kong

Now, i dont know if the first 3 digits are the gamecode, but i think it is.
Does anybody have more numbers ? (especially a scramble)

Thanks !

I'm starting now compiling the production and I have some questions for the experts

1. Have you ever seen FIREBIRD? Is it a port of something else??
2. Any information about EGGOR? I found it on KLOV
3. same question for SEA BATTLE, do you think it is a port?


PS @Paul, you can update your website: ZACCARIA CIRCUS exists. There are at least 2. One is in a friend of mine collection, I had the other one but I trade it. The buyer is one of the worker that in those years made this cab; he is collecting all cabs he produced :D so it is in good hands...
Looking at you web page I can see sometimes you say "port of..." and some other times "licensed". is there a difference? Do you mean ported games are not licensed but bootlegs?


Title: Re: The Absolutely Incomplete Zaccaria's Aracades Catalogue
Post by: Frame on October 02, 2014, 05:05:49 PM
I notice this:

or:

in UR2 you extract "Laser Battle" and put int in UR3

or (IMO preferit shape division)

you Identify UR2 to UR5 by the shape...and not the marquee.

I'm wrong (and probably you are bored to listen to me) but the usual shape for that Zaccaaria UR are only 2 type:

1. QUASAR-SPACE PIRATE-SCRAMBLE (I think oldest one side art....coin box are inside the the coin door)

2. VANGUARD (I supposed newes shape)
2a. STARS SPLASH color BROWN (DARKNEST ONE...the coin box open like "garage door")
2b. STARS SPLASH color BRIGHT (azure and dark blue....the coin box open like a door...it have the black frame around)

VANGAUAR and STARS SPLASH have the same shape: curved rear top, all the rest straight rear top.

Identify the game by Marquee or control panel or bezel or a mix of this part it's very hard.

There are many unknown games, identify by Marquee only (Fantasy, Tactician, Locomotive ecc..)...ad also Mr. Do! I belive
There are same games with a FULL THEMA cab: Vangauard: The side art, the marqee, the CP, the bezel.
There are a lot of games identify by component:  marqee, CP, bezel (Eyes).
 
...I repeat It's only my opinion..for a simple systematic way

Title: Re: The Absolutely Incomplete Zaccaria's Aracades Catalogue
Post by: PaulSwan on October 03, 2014, 05:20:01 AM
I'll start scanning in the remaining manuals that I have, but here's another that might not be in any better shape than the previous scans of this manual:

http:\\www.zzzaccaria.com\manuals\CrazyKongTechnicalManual.zip (http://http:\\www.zzzaccaria.com\manuals\CrazyKongTechnicalManual.zip)

Firebird there is a curved marque but I suspect that it's a distributor or third party bootleg Phoenix conversion kit.

Sea Battle exists as a flyer and I've not seen a reference to it being derived from something else. Folks have said it was produced and claim to have seen the cab originally. There is a possibility it may be of the same lineage as Scorpion.

Eggor I've never seen Zaccaria board or any Zaccaria parts for it. So far it appears to be unconfirmed.

Did you notice that a Zaccaria Kangaroo surfaced on Ebay over the last few days? Dedicated CP and marque.

In my list, "Licensed" means that the exact game was used. "Ported" means that the same game was reprogrammed onto different hardware (like Galaxia is from Galaxians and Astro Wars is from Astro Fighter).

It's great to here that a Zaccaria Circus has survived :)

In terms of known serial numbers, I've recorded the ones from the cabs I've restored so far:

Game   Zaxxon
Manufacturer   Zaccaria/NSM-Lowen
Serial Number   V141743

Game   Jackrabbit

Serial Number   V144.387

AVG Pac'n'Paint converted to Jungle King (flat marque): V129763 (cab, monitor), V133494 (game PCB & mounting plate)
Quasar (Dambusters converted): V111214 (PSU, monitor)
Frogger (flat marque, dedicated): V126596 (cab, brick & PSU)

Vanguard (Scramble MTC-900 style): V125098 (everything)
Super Cobra (curvy cobra style): V125984 (cab) <- I should have said above that the 1st Cobra I listed is that oddball atypical conversion style one).
Puckman (dedicated): V112846 (monitor), V122898 (brick, PSU labelled "Puckman").
Phoenix: V116803 (cab)

I'm not sure the serial numbers say much, but they might if we get enough of them?

The distance in numbers suggests they turned out a lot of Quasar cabs but the really interesting one is that your Vanguard and my "Cobra" style Frogger rolled off the production line only 25 cabs apart  :o Likely they were neighbors at the factory :)

Hi Paul,
did you put Tactician and Zaxxon in the same file for any reason? is tactician a converison kit for zaxxon or something?

The cab was originally a Tactician that it looks like NSM converted to Zaxxon (there are NSM flyers for both games). NSM removed the title cover from the original manual and added a sheet for additional Zaxxon information (the Konami adaptor wiring chart & DIP switches). Since the manual appears to be a Zaccaria manual for Tactician, mentioning the marque & control panel overlay parts for it, it would seem that Tactician is original Zac. So far, no evidence has been found to indicate if Zaxxon was ever native out of the Zaccaria factory versus NSM conversions of a batch of Tacticians. I'm not aware of a complete Tactician cab still existing.

Does anyone have the engineering blueprints for these Zaccaria cabinets?

I would like to build a Star Splash UR2 from scratch - Is that possible to do?

Do these cabinets ever come up for sale? I have never seen one which is why I want to build my own

Any info would be great, this is definately the place to ask.

Title: Re: The Absolutely Incomplete Zaccaria's Aracades Catalogue
Post by: vernimark on March 11, 2015, 07:51:38 PM
I have some questions for the zac experts.

Is it correct to say that ONLY these cabs had a dedicated cabinet (in term of shape of course)

•   UN1: TV Jocker
•   UN2: Off Limits
•   UN3: Clowns
•   UN4: The Invaders
•   UN5: Sea Battle
•   UN6: Tron
•   UN7: Shooting Gallery

Is it true that there are the following relationships?

•   UN1: TV Jocker -> original Hockey Ramtek
•   UN2: Off Limits -> original ?
•   UN3: Clowns -> original Circus Exidy
•   UN4: The Invaders -> original Space Invaders Midway
•   UN5: Sea Battle -> original ?
•   UN6: Tron -> original Tron Midway
•   UN7: Shooting Gallery -> original Shooting Gallery Seatongrove Ltd. (Vice Versa???)







Title: Re: The Absolutely Incomplete Zaccaria's Aracades Catalogue
Post by: PaulSwan on March 11, 2015, 10:21:58 PM
Sea Battle I've only ever seen as a cockpit on the flyer. Is it different from the usual cockpit in terms of shape?

Off Limits -> Breakout variation (something similar to Pro Breakout).
Sea Battle -> Original AFAIK, possibly IGR.
Shooting Gallery -> I don't know of any none-Zac versions of this. P-Man thought this was done by Seaton for Zac exclusively.
The Invaders -> Original Space Invaders Taito :)

Title: Re: The Absolutely Incomplete Zaccaria's Aracades Catalogue

Title: Re: The Absolutely Incomplete Zaccaria's Aracades Catalogue
Post by: PaulSwan on March 12, 2015, 06:34:55 PM
None are "identical" per se, but are equivalently styled is a better description.
Off Limits does like it might be equivalently styled to Breakout, also.

Ok, I'm here now to ask you some pictures in decent resolution of any zac cab in good condition (aesthetically complete) taken with an angle of more or less 45 deg.

something line the attached picture (this is compressed in order to post it here, I prefer a gif or PNG or what you want).

If resolution is good I'd like to use them in the page dedicated to each title, if the resolution is not enough I need in any case some small pictures to identify the game/shape and put them in a list

Great work! Don't forget Sea Scare in the UR1 list. Other games have been seen in this cab style but it's unknown if they are distributor conversions or factory. IIRC I've seen Phoenix that looks like it had a real Zac marque and a real Zac control panel in the UR1 style (art same as Astro Wars otherwise IIRC).

Post by: PaulSwan on April 06, 2015, 02:29:40 AM
Hehe, yes, there are a bunch of conversions out there making it a bit hard to determine which may have been factory and which were third party. The Firebird marque is 3rd party I think as it's cut & print is not consistent with the Zaccaria factory marques.

Phoenix is an odd one - there is this cab with a Zaccaria art marque:
(http://www.zzzaccaria.com/photos_www/2013/Patryck_PhoenixDodgem.jpg)

...but the real piece of interest is this control panel that turned up with a Leisure Games moniker:
(http://www.zzzaccaria.com/photos_www/2013/AW_ZacCPsAndInsideTheInvaders/PV/2013-04-16 11.50.59.jpg)

The Invaders was likely a factory conversion kit - all of the artwork is applique over the Dodgem artwork - yes, the side art is one huge sticker I'm told. I've seen at least two of them that are consistent.

is there something else to say about cockpits?


Title: Re: The Absolutely Incomplete Zaccaria's Aracades Catalogue
Post by: PaulSwan on August 15, 2015, 04:00:03 AM
AFAIK there was the Buck Rogers semi-dedicated and then the Universal version only. Everything else in the cab that's not Buck Rogers is an op application of the Universal or BR conversion. Are there pictures that support Outrun as being a semi-dedicated or factory application and not a Universal?

I suspect the Universal came after BR since the cab has woodwork changes to fit more inline with the other Universal cabinets. Maybe BR was 1982 and Universal 1983?

Don't forget Sea Battle - it's on the flyer as a cockpit, dedicated. Some claim to have seen it back in the day so it's believed to have been made but parts have never been found :(

Title: Re: The Absolutely Incomplete Zaccaria's Aracades Catalogue
Post by: vernimark on August 15, 2015, 10:19:26 AM
Hi Paul,
I could see a couple of cockpits with outrun inside but actually nothing dedicated. So I suppose your suspects are true.

Sea Battle is in another section because of its dedicated shape.

Post by: vernimark on October 28, 2015, 05:59:08 PM
looking at the web I can see Space Fortress has a manual for the upright version only. So I assume released cocktail tables are:

- Astro Wars
- Quasar
- Scramble
- Space Pirate

- Supercobra? Exists?

I dunno the fifth pic what is

anyone can confirm?

PIC3 SCORPION sold in Italy last week
other pics on Paul's web site

PIC1 is a UR3, PIC2 and PIC3 are UR5
I'm wondering if SCORPION can be found in UR5 cabs only and the flyer  is no correct.

About arts, seems that can be found both with "stars" and "alien city"

Zaccaria/SeeVend Hustler, same sort of cab as NSM/Lowen Zaxxon but with the side-art matching "Vanguard" glass (yes, that artwork makes no sense for a pool game). Dedicated marque & control panel overlay (artwork scans in the pipeline). None-Zaccaria coin door. The internals of the cab were made for this game - the Zaccaria power brick and fuse label say "HUSTLER" and the control panel wiring is only pinned for left/right/shoot.

ZELCO games VS ZAELCO games

as you know some Zac boards have been made by ZELCO GAMES (early production) and others by ZAELCO GAMES.

I had the opportunity to ask the reason to Natale Zaccaria during the ICE exhibition in london last week.

"Oh I remember very well the reason! We didn't know a company named ZELCO already existed in Milano concerning electronic production, so they asked us to chenge our name company..."

I'm sorry to bore you all but your opinions are very important for me.
I'm not convinced about the PHOENIX version UR1.

I could find these versions, both are in Paul's archive but I dunno if the marquees are both made by Zaccaria or not. Is there someone has these cabs? Any indication of originality?

Seems to be clear that a dedicated UR1 doesn't exist but the Astro Wars conversion seems to be  well done.


Title: Re: The Absolutely Incomplete Zaccaria's Aracades Catalogue
Post by: PaulSwan on March 22, 2016, 10:38:39 PM
I have the control panel for the one on the right. It has a Leisure Games round label the same as Astro Wars so it was either a conversion kit or a factory run using Astro Wars cabs (or both).

Here I want to list the games WITHOUT a known (by me) Manual.
If you have one or more manuals of the list please contact me or just upload it.
I'd like to have a good scan, in case you are bored I can buy the original or pay your time for scanning it. In any case all documents will be part of the community :)
Any kind of document is appreciated: flyer, instruction manual, SCHEMATICS(!!), user manual, part of a manual with missing pages...
and pictures, pictures, pictures  :lol:  :lol:  :lol: I'm available to make a trip come to you with my camera and all tools needed for printable pics, just let me know if your are available to help me.

Games without a known document:
TV JOKER, CIRCUS, DODGEM, VANGUARD, EYES, MR. DO!, SEA BATTLE, SCORPION, SHOOTING GALLERY, FIREBIRD, PUCK MAN, BUCK ROGERS, PAC AND PAINT, FITTER, COMIDAR, JACK RABBIT

I found last month the manual of ASTRO FANTASIA, a CASSETTE game distributed by ZACCARIA. SCAN is available if you want it


This is an open link to upload whatever you want (zac related) and where tou can find the astro fantasia pdf.
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7cwW1Pvd8oLNndhTUF0SXJBNVU

just for you in that folder you can find a draft of chapter 2 (not completed yet)
Any kind of suggestion or correction is appreciated. As you can see most o the text is still in italian only and a lot of pics are missing or, in most cases, have not a so good quality. I hope the meaning of I want to do is clear. watermark just to remind it is not a final version :D

thank you

PS: this job is impossible without your help.



if I knew i needed years to do this job.....  :pac:

This seems to be a good place to post this...

Howdy guys, an Undumped wiki editor from Emulab.it (and MAMEdev) poking my head in here.

As usual, I'm trying to ensure that the software for these PCBs match MAME's archives. (Yes, we care about preserving bootleg / licensed ROMs with copyright changes, etc. these days! Yes, we know that's a bit of a change from the old days!)

Zaccaria's a real mess given the number of third parties making conversion kits for their cabinets, Zaccaria making cabinets for other distributors, the number of licenses (and possible bootlegs) they were making, and so on.

Here's where we stand thus far (mostly thanks to Deb of Tilt.it's help on this):
Undumped (?): https://mamedev.emulab.it/undumped/index.php?title=Category:Zaccaria

Dumped: http://www.progettoemma.net/indice.php?fast=&ricerca=&textype=any&romset=&manufacturer=Zaccaria&year=

I'd like to verify that the software for these PCBs on the wiki (when it exists) already matches a set documented in MAME by another publisher, to ensure that it's been preserved.

If they don't (even due to a subtle copyright screen change to insert the "Copyright Zaccaria" text, but mostly ignoring different ROM size "splits"), then you should probably get in touch.

I'm currently trying to avoid getting into the "Other Zaccaria Products" list Deb has made, until I have a clearer picture on who was making them and who was distributing them, what counts as Zaccaria products and what doesn't: http://www.tilt.it/deb/zaccaria-en.html#altro

Appreciate everything you guys have been doing collecting information, and I look forward to getting a copy of vernimark's book :)

Greetz to (at least) Paul and Vernimark. :)

Nice to hear, that you want to save all Zaccaria related datas. :spaceace:
I have some of your undumped pcbs, my programmer can't read the 2706 eproms though, I will check if I can help.
At the moment, I have 3 Zaccaria Dribbling pcbs, a pcb that looks like a Zaccaria made Vanguard, a Space Pirate, a Phoenix with the original Zaccaria bootleg pcb and a Pacman/Puckman/Hangly Man, that also made by Zaccaria.

Hi Bela,
I made an adapter for DRIBBLING using +5, -5, +12 only without making any modification to the board. THis evening I'll post the pinout.
I repaired most of my boards (3 model racing and 1 olympia) and all boards worked properly. Be sure the ZAC pinout is the same of MR/OLYMPIA version

Hi Bela,
I needed a bit of time to collect some infos.
location: south Italy, very south.
price: 150 euros as is (converted, not working, without the original controls)

I'm trying to have more pics, in the meantime think what I can do to have one of your zac dribbling boards  ;D  ;D  ;D


Title: Re: The Absolutely Incomplete Zaccaria's Aracades Catalogue
Post by: Belike on March 22, 2017, 12:31:57 PM
Thanks Marco! ;)
The pcbs are not mine, but the owner wont keep all 3, he will sell at least 2.
I would like to test them first with a jamma adapter, but still dont know, what should I hook up to "-ponte" and "+ponte".
Do you have any idea?
Manual here:

During pandemic I had time to write some more parts.
Chapter dedicated to cabinet shapes is changed, new cabinets and pics found, and types (ur1, ur2. ...) have been sorted by date.
Probably the work will be split into 2 parts because 500 pages are too much 😂

I will post soon my repository with all pdf manuals. I found a lot of new docs.

Here's a picture of the sideart of a bit dirty and dingy Zaccaria Comidar cabinet found in Hungary by my pal Zsolt (a fellow collector).

Correction:
Paul Swan has just said it's a converted Fitter.
And observing the theme of the games it's obvious he's right.

It must have (also) been an Amidar sometime for sure. No specific Zacc sideart exists for Comidar, I guess.

It looks like the creator of this sideart is the same like on the crazy kong.

Comidar uses Spacetation art, mine is a comidar ;-)
